Police have closed off a retail park in Great Yarmouth after a roof on a unit became unsafe due to the wind.

The strong winds have blown parts of a roof and the front of a building off in the Gapton Hall Retail Park.

As well as police, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service are attending the incident and have confirmed the park has been closed.

Eyewitness Jack Hunt said there are several police cars, a fire engine at the site and they have shut the whole park.
